Carol & Eric

Carol & Eric’s wedding day was very different from wedding days we are used to.  We usually arrive 1-2 hours before the dress goes on.  We have a chance to meet everyone, talk with everyone, and shoot a crazy amount of details before all the excitement begins.  In this case, we arrived and almost immediately started shooting ceremony #1 out of 3.  I was pretty nervous about jumping right in, but these people were AMAZING and needed no revving up!  Carol, Eric, and their families are so joyful and loving.  They started the day with a traditional Vietnamese ceremony, then went to another location and had a tradition Chinese ceremony and had an incredible lunch (complete with a roasted pig), and then our “normal” day began with a traditional western ceremony.  It was a whirlwind of a day, but it was so much fun! Carol & Eric, thank you for inviting us in to these beautiful moments.
